In the bottom picture I have a 1/8 to 1/16 NPT adapter, and it doesnt work.

So, it looks like you have a brass metering valve that takes 1/8" tube fittings. if the nut and ferrule are brass, then you'll need the corresponding brass tube fitting with a 1/8" MPT end, part#: B-2-TA-1-2

If you go with a stainess steel fitting, SS-2-TA-1-2

Then you'll need the corresponding stainless steel 1/8" nut and ferrule to attach to the metering valve threads. When it comes to tube fittings, you must keep the metals the same, brass tubes get brass nuts and ferrules and stainless steel tube fittings get stainless steel nuts and ferrules.

Both of those fittings have a proper 1/8" MPT end that will fit the bubble counter.
